It took a long time for this album to follow in the footsteps of their EP with the same name, and the reason is that this album was recorded two years ago already, but is only now available via Massacre records.

If you don’t know the band, don’t let the cover art fool you. What looks like it may be tending towards extreme metal is merely a disguise for excellent power metal with great hooks. But that is only the base from which Vanish starts. With every song the fathom different waters, dipping a little into death metal or looking into the melodic metal corner, changing between clear vocals and growls, sometimes even thrash shouts, but never forgetting the importance of the melody.

A good part of the praise for this album goes to singer Bastian Rose, who is able to perform all the above convincingly. Come To Wither is a dramatic, powerful album which will surely be loved by fans of Savatage, Brainstorm or Rage. As an appetizer the tracks ‘This Is How We Die’ and ‘The Grand Design’ are highly recommended.

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
